8Definitely worth the time of going out and purchasing if you're a fan of Monopoly or you know somebody who is. And with a 40 dollar price tag for all platforms, it's a steal. Personally I'm not a huge fan but my wife and in-laws are and I brought it home at 2 this afternoon and they are still playing. Graphically, it's nothing to write home about but I don't think anybody is expecting the greatest graphics in the world from a game like this. The ambient sound is cute and suits all the boards well.
All in all, I would give this game an 8. Good family fun, 4 player co-op on a single console or over Xbox Live, and all in all a positive experience.… Full Review »
Saw this advertised on the xbox DLC and figured, what the hell, I like monopoly... Wow what a disappointment.
The graphics are decent enough, it is a fresh face for an old game... I will give it that much, however some of the interactions between tokens and avatars are sketchy at best. The bad: The sound is god awful. If you make it past the voice overs, there are still subtle annoyance I dislike, as in, hit the button to roll the dice, and hit the button again to stop rolling the dice.... was the second button tap really necessary? Its just one more thing that slows down the game. The biggest flaw with this game is that it is almost entirely unplayable on xbox live. I have found that in about half of the games, either some glitch will happen that will freeze the game during player movement, or whomever is the host will leave, and the game will collapse. What a critical flaw in a game designed to be played by multiple people. Based on the fact that this game was released 8-9 months ago, which is more than enough time to fix these multiplayer flaws, which the maker obviously doesn't care about, I am leaving the review of 1. The entire game just feels like it was thrown together in a weekend.
In short, if you cant play with other people, then you are just playing with yourself,… Full Review »
